    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great fundamental training in whichever area you specialise in. If you move on you will realise how much better skilled you are than others. Corporate responsibility and PVP are inspiring. Great sense of pride comes from working on such well known products.

    Cons

    Very cult like - "we are P&G and we are the best" can lead to arrogance that ignores reality ( examine the current business situation to see this in action).
    Promotion is very difficult and very competitive. Unfortunately it too often occurs due to networks not capability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within does not work. We need to infuse other talent and experiences to deal with a rapidly changing world.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great People, great ideas comfortable work environment with remote worker flexibility.

    Cons

    Cult like atmosphere. Resistant to new ideas and new ways of doing things. For publicity purposes they state they are a progressive company...... Not really. Doing things the old P&G way or get out of the way. Management is too restrictive. Compensation and benefits are very good but not worth having to sell your soul. Once the job market changes I am out of here. The lovers of Mom's add make me sick to my stomach. It is such BS.
